Let's Talk Tournaments

Kits are showing up for Legion, and Armada's Store Championships are in full swing.  So lets take a look at the tournament structure of both, and look at some terms common to the tournament scene.

That's the old MOV list!

BA in Art History - Making Thrawn Work

Okay, so honestly there isn't a whole lot to making Thrawn "work".  Take Thrawn, dial up 3 Navigates, then set your dials on Turns 3, 4, and 5 to anything else.  That was easy, next!

Battle of the Jank

In the spirit of Biggs' declaration of the season of jank, frequent Vassaler Karneck and I tried out our best garbage lists to see if there was any potential. I was trying out Sato, while Karneck was having a go at Sloane Phantoms. I bring you, the Battle of the Jank!

I played some Armada! It was Fun! You should play too!

While most of my FFG gaming lately has been Legion I still sneak in the occasional game of Armada.  I still think Armada is the better game system, but Legion just has a ton of popularity locally.  Knowing that I am going to play in the Armada tournament at GenCon in a little over a month, I know that I need to start getting some practice games in.

The Garbage Will Do - Jank During Store Championship Season

It is time to get excited about Star Wars: Armada.  Not because we've had any new announcements in awhile, because we haven't.  But because it is now STORE CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON!

Imagining an Armada 2.0

With no news for Armada in some time, there isn't a whole lot to talk about. I could do some battle reports on my continuing adventures with Raddus (which I may still do), but otherwise I haven't had anything particularly good to talk about. Meanwhile, our friends over in the X-Wing community are being treated to a brand new edition of their game come this fall. That has invariably led to speculation in the Armada community centered around one question: what would an Armada 2.0 look like?

Ground Commander's Guide - Snowtroopers

I know they've been out for almost a month now, but we need to talk about Snowtroopers!

Haven't gotten a good picture of them in action, so have the pic I took at Worlds.
